2 Psychology of Play Online Degree Connection DEGREE CONNECTION Psychology of Play allows students to explore elements of play within each degree program. Students will begin to evaluate what drew them to their respective degrees through the lens of play. The benefits and necessity of play in both personal and professional development will be explored as well as the potential challenges that must be addressed. Students will learn to use play to motivate themselves to achieve success in their respective degree programs by building upon critical-thinking and interpersonal relationship skills and using research to support their development as professionals. The concepts and research addressed in this course offer additional psychological perspectives and insights to supplement the technical and conceptual skills built into the core curriculum. INDUSTRY CONNECTION Psychology of Play is a course designed to challenge students to examine the connection between play and their respective industries. In order to present their best self to their industry, students must understand how play helps to shape the brain, increases productivity at work, and enhances interpersonal relationships. Students are encouraged to visualize their future paths within their industries and use this to guide their development, both personally and professionally. Psychology of Play aims to validate the importance of play in a way that then allows students entering the entertainment industries to be able to reinforce the value of play in their respective professions. Successful completion of this course will ensure that students are prepared to create a lifelong play plan with greater self-awareness and increased social competence. RESEARCH COMPONENT Students will conduct research through self-assessment, Full Sail Library resources, and observation. Participating in selfassessments will allow students to reflect on themselves and evaluate personal play tendencies, deepening their level of self-awareness. Conducting research using Library resources will help students narrow their focus to scholarly, credible sources. Lastly, engaging in observational analysis will allow students to apply concepts from a real-world perspective.

3 Psychology of Play Online Topics Covered TOPICS COVERED y Introduction to Play y Play Personalities y Brain and Development y Positive Psychology y Motivation LEARNING ACTIVITIES Reading Assignments y Critical Thinking y Value of Play in Society y Interpersonal Relationships y Lifelong Play ly reading will be assigned to provide students with a solid foundation of psychological principles and theory. In order to be successful in this course, students will need to apply the theories learned from the readings to their projects. Discussions Each week, students will be given video prompts and/or thoughtfully constructed questions to push them to consider how weekly course concepts are relevant to their industry. Students will write an initial post and a meaningful response post to one or more of their peers. They will be required to write their initial post by Wednesday of each week to allow ample time for their peers to review and respond to the post. The reply must directly address another classmate s post and should offer clear and specific feedback about the post(s). Merely stating agreement or disagreement is not sufficient. Projects/Assignments Students will complete four creative assignments throughout the month that will directly apply the material learned in the specified weeks. ly assignments may involve applying personal examples to content, finding examples from society to apply content to, and/or applying provided examples to content. Specific instructions will be provided on FSO. Learning Checks Students will complete four weekly learning checks that are designed to give students insight into the basic knowledge acquired to date. Items covered may relate to knowledge and comprehension (facts, interpretation of information, and problem solving) or analysis (understanding relationships between pieces of information). Live Interactive Sessions Live interactive sessions will provide students with an opportunity to participate in a video-enabled live presentation with their peers and the instructor. Students will experience live teaching of course concepts as they interact with classmates in structured activities and apply the material to their respective industries.

4 Psychology of Play Online Strategies for Successful Learning STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESSFUL LEARNING y Time management is the biggest challenge for students in this course. Look through all the activities for the week as early as possible and plan your time accordingly. Some activities require quite a bit of preparation and involve multiple steps for successful completion. y Networking is critical to your success in this course. Your classmates are some of the best resources you have available to you in this program. They re experiencing the same classes as you and juggling a similar list of other life commitments. Get to know them. Read their profiles. Correspond with them on discussion boards. Send an if you re interested in learning more about a classmate s professional experiences. By doing some networking now, you will enrich your experience in the online program and magnify your job opportunities after completion of the program. y For many of you, your computer may be another subject you need to take time learning. To address any technical issues you may have, please contact FSO Support. y Read the fine print. Many of your assignments will have instructions for you to follow and a grading rubric for your work. To get the most out of an assignment, it is important that you understand and meet all the requirements for your work. The more personally you can apply the concepts, the better you will understand them and retain them. Look for personal applications of the concepts addressed or evidence of how they may affect others or the world around you. To ensure the best grade, you can use the guidelines as stated on the grading rubric. Before submitting any assignment, it is best practice to proofread for grammatical and spelling errors. y Communicate any concerns or questions to your instructor as soon as possible. Make note of your instructor s office hours, ichat hours, and preferred method of contact to ensure that you reach the instructor successfully. Your instructors are not typically accessible over the weekends, so please keep that in mind when planning your time. y Above all, make sure you play!
